The team at ImaGINation sought the guidance of New Zealand seaweed expert Lea Bramley and trialled several different seaweeds before deciding on wakame for the distinctive salt and umami flavours it brings to this Gin.
The wakame has been wild foraged from the waters of the Wairarapa and Wellington coasts. Wakame arrived in New Zealand coastal waters on the hulls of ships and thrives here. It is of course a delicious culinary ingredient with many positive health benefits.
The initial aroma is juniper forward, fresh and sweet.
On the palate you first get the refreshingness of the citrus before fading to reveal the juniper. A noticeable sweetness then appears giving way to a sweet salt finish. Overall, this classic dry gin with a contemporary twist transports you to the coast and that unforgettable feeling that sun and salt and waves breaking over the rocks creates.
